This is a lovely little Cornwall walk around the seaside harbour town of St Mawes. It is quite a breathtaking place to visit so on the way in we stopped the car and jumped out to take a few photos even before we had arrived.

Once there the plan was to have a quick 3 mile walking route around the town to St Mawes Castle and then get on the St Mawes to Falmouth Ferry and have a good walk around the opposing Pendennis Castle stopping at Gylly Beach cafe for lunch. So, from the quay at St Mawes we walked passed the pasty shop and the bank to slowly climb up the road to St Mawes Castle for a quick look around.

From the castle we walked north along the South West Coast Path and then took the right hand fork to then walk steadily uphill and inland to eventually join the A3078 road where we turned right to the next footpath signpost on the left hand side. We walked down the path as it doubled back turning left off the main path down to Bosloggas to the Percuil River following it all the way down to St Mawes.

    Lovely area and me and the kids love both St Mawes and Pendennis castles. St Mawes has a special place in my life – I spent my honeymoon in the Idle Rocks hotel by the harbour!

  2. Very nice :)

    They were refurbishing Idle Rocks when we were there – looks lovely though
